Keats Island is one of Vancouvers best kept secrets. Affordable, easily accessable from Horseshoe Bay in less than an hour, two hours door to door from downtown Vancouver.
This lovely little island boasts the same weather that the Sunshine Coast receives, which is 60% less rain than Vancouver!
Just a short boat/ferry/watertaxi away, you will find a number of small communities strung along the shorelines of Keats Island. Homes and cottages dot the coast and the island also has many great swimming beaches. There is no industry, commercial or retail business and the folks here like it that way. It is just a short trip away to re-stock cupboards and or take a day in Gibsons lower village; filled with restaurants, galleries and parks, as well as a great boardwalk to take you along the shore. Free open air music and entertainment abound here in the summer. Pack a picnic and enjoy a concert in the Winegarden Park overlooking Gibsons Harbour.
Prices here on Keats range from 120k for a large building lot, right up to and over the 1M dollar mark for oceanfront. A nice 2/3 bedroom cottage with a small view will run into the 300+k mark but under the 400k mark.
Keats Island is a perfect getaway for those looking for a retreat from the Big City....the easy access and small time frame to arrive, make these properties usuable all year round.
